The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is schedule to begin demolition of the existing northbound I-27 bridge on Wednesday. The work will require closing U.S. Highway 82/4th Street, at I-27.
Westbound U.S. 82 traffic will be detoured north on the I-27 frontage road to Municipal Drive, over the southbound interstate frontage road and then back south to U.S. 82.
Eastbound U.S. 82 traffic will be detoured south on I-27 to the 19th Street exit. Motorists will then use the turn-around at 19th Street onto the northbound frontage road to get back to U.S. 82.
These detours are expected to remain in place through Friday, June 24.
Work to build new bridges at the I-27 and U.S. 82 interchange is part of the Phase 4 Marsha Sharp Freeway project. Construction on the $47.7 million project began on April 1st and will build the freeway main lanes and frontage roads, from Avenue L to just east of I-27, and the I-27 interchange.
Work will take place weather permitting.
